Carnival Ecstasy Cruise to Bahamas 2015 – Day 3 of 5

Today,  we arrived at Half Moon Cay.  It’s a private island owned by Holland America but Carnival,  I think, is the only ship that goes there, as well.  Other cruise lines own different private islands but heard this one’s the best and I think they’re right.  The sand was like white powdery sand.  We spent the whole day there.   They offered free food on the island, as well.

Eating breakfast before we got off the ship.   Short video.


We took a tender to the island.

Finally.   Amazing and beautiful.   The water was so clear.   We could see our ship right there.

Ready for lunch.  Waiting for a ride.

After lunch, we swam a little more and got some souveniers.

On the serenity deck saying bye to half moon cay.  We both took sea shells from the island and James made a pendant with one of his to give to me.   So sweet.

We had dinner and sat next to 2 nice couples.

The appetizers were good but I didn’t really care for my food this night so we went to the Lido deck and I ordered a mozzarella caprese sandwich.   I put salami in it which tasted really good.  We took it outside to eat on the balcony which was very nice.


I had a good day.   We got really burnt but it was so much fun!

I loved the seperate night light we each had above our beds.  Every night I’d read my book while James was asleep.  So peaceful.  I miss that.
